    well, why don't you look at the number of orders in, vs the number of the month. can you spot the equation that relates them?

    isn't it that each month they get 2 more orders in than the month number? orders_in = month_no + 2 ?

    it seems to increase by one like the first month there would only be 1 order out, for the second month there would be 3, the fourth month there would be 7 so on

    isn't that increasing by 2? orders_out = 2*month_no + 1
